A local firm has taken a step further in asserting
its commitment to the environment.
On 10 December 2009 Deloitte and the Department of
Environment signed a memorandum of understanding to promote, assist and support
increasing awareness and implementation of environmental projects and green initiatives.
Director of the Department of Environment, Mrs. Gina
Ebanks-Petrie said that she was delighted to be able to work cooperatively with
a company such as Deloitte to promote sustainable development concepts and
“I think it is critical that government and private
sector corporations begin to work jointly to ensure the continued viability of
the resources and environmental systems on which our future well-being depends
and I am grateful to Deloitte for their foresight and commitment,” she said.
The partnership will allow Deloitte and DoE to work
together to identify, prioritize and provide technical assistance and funding
to implement activities relating to the environment and to actively seek to network
with other corporations who have similar green initiatives.
